Great check-in experience93% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Spacious and quaint, newly renovated 1-bedroom flat in a beautiful Victorian detached house in Sydenham, built 1881. Own drive + off street parking. Lovely well-maintained communal garden. Our road features in the famous painting 'The Avenue' by Pisarro. This is my own home, but I'm often away for work or travel, so I rent it out. Sleeps up to 4 people, if using comfy sofa bed in living room. Separate kitchen with small table for eating. Short walk from Sydenham station.

Ruth’s place is AWESOME! a beautifully refurbished flat in a gorgeous Victorian house, steps away from downtown Sydenham with its free restaurants and convenient access to the overground train and connections to central London. Ruth was a kind and thoughtful hostess, and we would…

This flat is very charming and comfortable and was the perfect location for visiting my family. It looks nice in the pictures but it is even better in person. Warm and bright-a delightful stay.

Ruth's flat was the perfect place for our stay in London. We enjoyed being close to family, shopping, transportation, and nice parks. The area is lovely and safe, and we felt right at home from the start. The Victorian-age house/building where the flat is located is charming …

Response from Ruth:
Hi Sally, thank you for your nice review! Glad you had good time. I agree the second staircase is indeed narrow as you reach the top of the house. The price to pay for those good rooftop views! I guess I am used to it and so forget it can be tough with a big suitcase. I will be sure to flag that in my profile. Apologies - if I had been there in person I could have helped you with your luggage. Next time I will :-)

Beautiful flat! It is super convenient to Sydenham station and was just around the corner from our friends' so it was perfect for us. The turret was a special treat! The bed is very comfortable and the bath was perfect at the end of a busy day.

We spent a great week at Ruth's flat, which was spotlessly clean, welcoming, and very cosy. We did not feel like anything was missing, enjoyed the local area (the nearby Blue Mountain Cafe serves a tasty breakfast), and found the travel time to central London to be perfectly reas…

If you like quirky, this is the place for you. We are a family of 4 (kids 8 and 6) and everyone loved the place. We slept on the sofa bed in lounge and found it perfectly fine for a few nights. The bed in bedroom was very comfy. This flat is beautiful and so really a delight to…
